What game on Sunday? The Pats didn't play the Bills. It's all in your imagination.

But the Red Sox did take 2 out of 3 in New York and are now 2 1/2 back from the Division and 1 1/2 ahead in the Wild Card.

Meanwhile, the President made a speech to the nation in an attempt to clarify and re-state our postion on the war on terror. A long, hazy summer has served as a platform for many to obfuscate what has really been going on. Overall, he did a good job. Though I did hear a local newsreader say the President didn't answer all of the questions, such as those asked by the families of our soldiers in Iraq. Specifically, "When are they coming home?" My first question is whether the newsreader, Lori Johnson on WPRO, actually had evidence to support her statement or whether she was editiorializing. She played no clips of such hand wringing comments by military family members. If some did say this, then they need a reality check. This is what your son or daughter signed up for, folks. They serve at the whim of the Commander and Chief. It's their job. Yeah, it sucks and you miss them and it's dangerous, I understand, but it's what your sons and daughter's volunteered to do. There is no draft, this IS still a VOLUNTEER armed forces, after all. So buck up and support your kids and their commander.
